Come by HBT tonight as we celebrate Strasmas

Jun 8, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

Strasburg debut.jpgOk, I really should stop calling it Strasmas.  For one thing, it’s been beaten to death by now. For another thing, Gleeman is Jewish so it would only be fair for us to make a couple of Strasukkah references. For that matter I’m pretty sure Pouliot celebrates Strasivus, so maybe the whole holiday meme should just end.  But I digress.

The point is that tonight Drew Silva — himself a Strasnzaa celebrant —  is going to be doing inning-by-inning updates of The Anointed One’s debut. The thread will turn into a nice community repository of your Strasburg observations which, once it is over, we will print out, lay in the cornerstone of a nice public building and forget about for a few hundred years.  When it’s finally dug up our descendants will have a nice laugh over how quaint baseball was before the alien barrier was broken and we let pitchers with eight fingers and two heads into the game.

Anyway, the thread will be popping up around 6:30 PM Eastern.  First one to comment wins the imaginary calculator Darren Rovell used to figure out how much each Stephen Strasburg start contributes to the Nats’ bottom line.

    Will there be an aluminum pole, the airing of grievances, and acts of strenght? If so, I’m there!

    Craig, does MLB.TV apply a local blackout when you try to watch Pirates games? They do on my MLB 2010 iPhone app. Since when is Columbus in Pittsburgh broadcast territory??
